Azam Siddique, the father of Pakistan captain Babar Azam, has extended his best wishes and prayers to his son and Pakistan team ahead of their decisive T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final against New Zealand.
Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by five wickets on Sunday to advance to the final four of the big tournament. However, defeating the Tigers would not have been enough to move the Men in Green to the next round, since they required either Zimbabwe to defeat India or the Netherlands to defeat South Africa.
On Sunday, Fortune backed Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval. The Europeans defeated the Proteas by 13 runs, paving the way for the 2009 World T20 champions.
Before the crucial encounter, the captain’s father took to his official Instagram account to wish the green shirts success.
So far, the ongoing T20 World Cup has not gone well for Babar. The hitter has struggled to score big for his team, scoring only 39 runs in five Super 12 matches.
However, with his name and track record, he cannot be counted off right away.
On Wednesday, November 9, Pakistan will face the runners-up from last year at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Moreover, on Thursday, November 10, India will face England in the second semi-final of the major event at the Adelaide Oval.
